Swift360 BSIF Affiliation Announcement

We're delighted to announce our affiliation with the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) and admittance into the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme (RSSS)!

What is BSIF and the RSSS?

BSIF is the UK's leading trade body in safety and health (covering PPE). They help to influence legislation and provide the industry with a source of information on a range of workplace safety issues. They have active links with many government departments and over 130 representation Trade Bodies.

BSIF's RSSS is a direct response to the risk of non-compliant PPE products in the UK market. The scheme ensures all RSSS affiliates/members supply compliant products that are appropriately CE marked.


Why did Swift360 join?

As a personal protective equipment (PPE) supplier, we know how important it is that the products we supply comply to necessary legislation and standards. If they fail to work when they should, people's lives are on the line.

Unfortunately, the number of non-approved PPE products being sold into the UK is on the rise, alongside items that claim CE marking but haven't been appropriately certified.

To ensure we avoid such counterfeit products and guarantee a safe, reliable and compliant PPE supply to our customers, we've joined both the BSIF and BSIF RSSS.

This has involved the signing of a binding declaration, which states the products we offer meet relevant standards and legislation and are appropriately CE marked. As a BSIF RSSS affiliate, we'll also undergo independent auditing and random product testing to make sure everything we supply is compliant and safe to use.

Our inclusion on the RSSS register, and use of the RSSS shield, is a demonstration of our credibility to provide products that are fully compliant and fit for purpose.


In Safe Hands

As BSIF puts it: "Anyone can sell safety, but you wouldn't buy safety from anyone".

As an affiliate of the BSIF RSSS, you can have total peace of mind that the products you purchase from us are the real deal and will perform as they should if the need ever arises. (You can check out our core range of products here). Our close relationship with BSIF will also give us advanced insight into product trends and legislation updates - something all our customers will benefit from!

Our commitment to health, safety and ethical trading is stronger than ever, and we're excited to support BSIF in their mission to make workplaces safer!
